The place was very nice and relaxing. This is the most comfortable room I have lived in Melbourne. We will come back for sure. Highly recommend.

Joanne's communication was perfect from the beginning. The place is very nice, cosy and has a great outdoor view. She was very attentive and helpful and she even handed us some delicious baked ginger cookies. The location is perfect if you want to explore the area. My daughter and I will stay here again for sure. I highly recommend Joanne's place.

Our experience of staying at Rivendell was just great. The place and the area was very peaceful and relaxing. Jo, the host was very accommodating and great to communicate with, particularly regarding our dog who came with us, who enjoyed playing with Jo's dogs, and was so happy to roam around the property. The room was warm and inviting, great bed and great bathroom. I highly recommend for a trip to the peninsula and we will certainly return.

We had a lovely stay at this place, and we got positively surprised by the provided breakfast in the kitchen, as well as the books, card games and Netflix account. Really lovely. Didn't want to leave the place.

We were looking for a place near the hot springs. Jo and Michael's place was the best option. The room was spacious, cozy and comfortable. It was peaceful and quiet

Great stay at Joanne and Michael's who welcomed us in the nicest way. Beautiful place, warm and cosy, feeling secluded while being 5 min away from the beach and close to every nice restaurants and café you could ask for.
